RBob; I think I've owned every series Gator that Deere built except the tricycle type, but you are losing me with the term "E Gator". Did they build an electric powerd one that I haven't heard of maybe? Take the serial number to any Deere dealer for model and year identification, they can also order you an owners manual. Enjoy your day. Frank.

I believe that John Deere discontinued the E-Gator after a run of a few for a promotional program, but may be wrong.

I have only seen one, and it in a dealer show a year or so back.

For some reason I was thinking the one I saw had a low range selector so you could choose between hard flat surfaces and turf, so a John Deere dealer is likely the best way to get some good information.

If it is like most electric powered rigs, it will have a chain drive from the motor. If that is the case, you can install a larger secondary sprocket and gear it down.

I did a bit of digging and found the E-Gator bit the dust in the US and Canada about 1999 and is now the TE-Gator elsewhere. They are now a direct drive 48 volt unit, with a single speed geared transaxle. As far as I know they are only currently sold in Australia and New Zealand.

You can get the specs from John Deere's Australia site.

If the dealer cannot help, then one of the electric vehicle kit manufacturers would have the regulation systems needed to slow it down, and may have a more powerful motor kit that would help the hills.

Oregon' Thanks for all the info on the E-Gator. I thought I had kept up to date on all the Gators, but I missed that one. Frank.

I doubt you paid too much. I have a friend that is in to the electric vehicle thing, and he says that the E-Gator is one of the best and will likely never wear out.

I might be interested in selling mine if the price were right. It is a '99 with about 1020 hours, fresh batteries about two years ago and new tires all around this year. It has replacement seats also. It has a cab with glass windshield and a power dump bed with liner. Also has the front brush guard and the rear receiver hitch. body is good for this age vehicle (decals peeling at places and scratches on the plastic hood.) Have the 244 page technical manual, TM 1766 and also one for the Curtis motor controller.

The local dealer has several listed for over $6000

but I would be asking about half that...

They do seem to go for more than the gas versions, and you can use them inside buildings, etc.

Chuck
